Installing the Moodle Plugins

REGISTER YOUR MOODLE PLATFORM IN BABELIUM

First, you need to sign up in our main site babeliumproject.com and activate your account with the activation link we sent to the email address you specified in the register form. Then you need to go to the Babelium Moodle plugin activation page and enter your username, so that we can generate a set of keys for you to use in your Moodle platform. The keys will be sent once to the email address you used in the register form, so make sure you keep them safe.

This set of keys is used to identify and authorize your Moodle platform when making requests to the Babelium API.

INSTALL AND ENABLE THE PLUGINS

USING YOUR OWN BABELIUM PLATFORM? ENABLE THE API

If you are using your own Babelium server and want to enable Moodle instances to access the exercises stored there, you have to take additional steps, such as placing some API files in Babelium’s file system and compiling a special version of the video player.

For that, you have to clone the Babelium’s github Moodle repository. You will also find a step by step guide there on how to install the files.

FAQ

What kind of license do the plugins have?
Babelium plugin’s source code is free software (GPLv3 license)

Where are my videos being recorded?
When you record an answer (both audio or video answer) it is saved in our own Babelium server (babeliumproject.com).
This recording is a private video there (other users of babeliumproject.com website can’t see it). The exercise is only available to be assessed in the corresponding Moodle course by the corresponding teacher (in moodle.babeliumproject.com).

Can I record the videos using my own or private Babelium server?
Of course you can! Babelium website’s source code is also free software (GPLv3). You can download and install it in your own private server.
